The Atlantic Coast Conference finally hit its target yesterday, when Miami announced its intentions to join the conference in the 2004-05 academic year, ending the school's relationship with the Big East. Miami president Donna Shalala made the announcement in a news conference, one day before the penalty for exiting the Big East doubled to $2 million.

"I'm just anxious to get it near where the catcher is," U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna E. Shalala said yesterday before she threw out the first pitch of the Orioles' opener at Camden Yards. "There are no high expectations."Shalala, coached decades ago by current New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner in Cleveland's female softball leagues, needn't have worried. Unlike other dignitaries who have been chosen for the honor, Shalala pitched the full 60 feet, 6 inches and easily found the mitt of Orioles catcher Chris Hoiles.
